Photo Information for Pandora Mast Three


Recommended Comments

I wanted to build a very large model in order to show every bit of gear or rigging, but I live in an apartment which is too small for that sort of thing. So instead I built just the Main Mast of the H.M.S. Pandora to a large scale. I had the Anatomy of the Ship book on Pandora which has comprehensive spar and rigging information. I had a lot of trouble finding line in all the diameters I needed. The entire model is about eight feet tall including its base. Perhaps one day I will swap out the wood bench for a completely detailed hull section but this would be a difficult task.

I could not contemplate putting two eye splices on every ratline so I instead made seized eyes and this STILL took many days of work. I did my best to duplicate every last thread of rigging including all the seizings. I did not add the stunsails or their gear either.
